great spot to hike, not over populated so you really feel your out in nature! Well kept and marked! Way up in back is an old dump found a couple of really old cool bottles! The waterfall is so nice!

We stopped here after kayaking and spent three hours there. Take a picture of the map and park on cataract street. Trails are a little muddy but that's what makes it fun. Enjoy. Hardly any bugs

This is one of the best summertime activities Worcester has to offer. This is a beautiful hike through a lovely little park. The waterfalls are just gorgeous and the walk is breathtaking.
